Ms. Lion's Seizure
Ms. Lion had a grand mal seizure at the dog park.
She was walking along with the path with Mark. She was acting a little bit off, according to Mark. Nothing much. Just a little confused. All of the sudden, she toppled over and began convulsing. It only lasted a short time. A half-minute, tops. She seemed a little startled afterwards, but otherwise seemed quite peppy. She's been napping since we got home. Then again, she usually naps all day.
As far as we are aware, Ms. Lion has never had a seizure before. Our old poodle Moogie used to suffer from grand mal seizures every few months. We never determined a cause of them. However, his seizures began when he was much younger. Ms. Lion is 10-years-old. She hasn't been sick. The weather was comfortably cool. Who knows?
Our current plan of action is to wait and see. We'll likely take her to the veterinarian if she has another seizure. For now, we'll assume that her little brain experienced a one-time glitch that corrected itself.
